Israeli occupation forces soldiers arrest 7 Palestinians, storm Silwan

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up seven Palestinian citizens in various West Bank areas at dawn Wednesday, local sources said.

They said that five citizens were nabbed in Ramallah while two others were detained in Al-Khalil.

They pointed out that the soldiers arrested two citizens in Tal Al-Rumaila suburb in Al-Khalil shortly after dozens of Jewish settlers stormed the suburb and threw stones at its inhabitants.

Meanwhile, IOF soldiers broke into Silwan suburb in occupied Jerusalem on Tuesday evening and closed a road in Wadi Halawa in the town.

Residents said that the soldiers closed the street to protect Jewish settlers who had seized citizens’ lands in the town.
